There is good news for the employees working on contract in the state. The revised pay scale formula has been decided for the contract employees in Himachal Pradesh. Additional Chief Secretary Prabodh Saxena has issued office orders in this regard.

Additional Chief Secretary Finance Prabodh Saxena has clarified that after the implementation of the new pay scale for regular employees, revision in the salary of contract employees has already been proposed. In such a situation, contract employees should also be given an opportunity to shift to the new pay format. This too is to be implemented from January 1, 2022. If the contract employees wish, they can take the revised salary benefits as per the new rules. They will also have to inform the concerned Head of Department about this.
